BETTENDORF, Iowa (KWQC) -Farrell’s Extreme Body Shaping managers Sarah Benson and Ashley Kutmas are ready to leave 2020 in the past.

“It was definitely a challenging, challenging year 2020 was, especially being in the gym business,” Benson said.

“2020 wasn’t that great but 2021 is going to be a lot better,” Kutmas said.

The managers’ goals are clear for 2021 after being closed for over 60 days in 2020.

“Get as many people with that healthy mindset in here as possible, we want to share Farrell’s and our whole program with as many people as we can,” Henson said.

When it comes to individual goals, they said half of the battle is simply showing up.

“What I’m recommending to members is to focus on you and showing up every single day and that goes back to that whole mindset of ‘I’m here everyday, whether I want to be or not’,” Kutmas said.

“All you have to do is show up it’s easy, like the hardest part is getting here, and once you’re here, the rest is a breeze,” Henson said.

They also said to keep things simple.

“I always tell people to start out small, the small goals are what matters and that’s how you’re going to make more long term goals,” Kutmas said.

“We really focus on setting those small goals week to week and not worrying about ‘I want to lose 50 lbs. in ten weeks’ because that’s not a realistic goal,” Kutmas said.
